Robbins, Herman D., son of Dexter and Hannah (Robbins) Robbins, was born near Durhamville, this county, November 19, 1858. His father was a native of Dunstable, Mass., and his grandfather was one of the earliest settlers of this region, whither he removed from Springfield, Mass., in 1838; he cleared part of a farm of sixty acres, and afterward purchased forty acres of the Hulbert farm, making his holdings about one hundred acres. Of the union of Dexter Robbins and Hannah Robbins two children were born: Ella, who married in April, 1887, Fred Metz of Minoa; she died August 3, 1889, leaving one child, Eldred Robbins Metz, and the subject of this notice. Herman D. Robbins was educated at the Cherry street school in Oneida and later graduated from the Utica Business College. During his life he has been engaged in the occupation of farming, and now owns and occupies the farm purchased by his grandfather in 1838 and which has often been called the "banner farm" of that section. In politics he has been a consistent Democrat and has served in minor town offices. He married, in 1883, Martha Belle Walcott, a daughter of Gurdon Olcott of Durhamville. Five children have been born of this union: Florence Bertha, Herman Dexter, Harriet Frances, Hulbert Olcott and Sarah Belle.
